My ball python does it ALL the time. It's because of the movement outside the enclosure... he might think there's food. It makes me kind of nervous to take him out to show people, so I'm usually a bit reluctant. I think it's because he was from a petstore (W.C. most likely), and because he won't eat frozen/thawed...I've tried EVERYTHING imaginable, trust me! I held him all I could when he was younger. It helped a little, but he's still a kind of nippy. When I take him out he calms down, except for when my dog walks by and starts wanting to play then he starts striking at her. One time (this really startled me) he bit me on my nose!! It didn't hurt, lol... he thinks he's so tough . But it was just a little surprising. I still love him like my rest, though
Who are you callin' a freak?!
